The River – Book Review and Giveaway

the river

For today’s installment of Friday afternoon fun, I’m going to share with you my latest review book, The River by Beverly Lewis. It is no wonder she is a New York Times bestselling author. She can weave a story that draws the reader into the lives of the characters in Lancaster County.

The River focuses on two sisters, Tilly and Ruth, who left their Amish roots a few years ago. One phone call from their brother, Melvin, puts their lives into a tailspin. Their dad has a heart condition and is not doing well. Melvin urges them to return for their parents’ anniversary celebration, fearing it will be their last. Tilly digs in her heels at first, but eventually softens and decides to return with Ruth.

Upon returning, they are both forced to face issues from their past that have tucked away. Tilly and Ruth also need to mend relationships with their family since they left the community. Will they be able to get past this barrier and find acceptance and restoration?

I would definitely recommend this book. It is a relaxing read for those gloomy fall days.
